Vintage Rookwood Art Pottery Vase Description and Item Information Up for sale is this vintage Rookwood art pottery vase. Please excuse any glare in the photos. This pretty vase is glazed matte blue. There is textured decoration of leaves in relief.
This pot stands approximately 5 inches tall, and it is about 4 3/4 inches in diameter. Unpacked, it weighs 1 pound 7.4 ounces. This vase would be a fine addition to a collection of American art pottery.
Identification This Rookwood vase is marked beneath, as shown. It was made in 1945, and its shape number is 6632. It also has an incised "34" which is of unknown significance.
The vase has a ground X mark, denoting that it was considered to be a piece of second quality by the Rookwood factory. Condition This pot looks good overall, with no repairs, cracks, or post-factory chips. It has light wear overall. Excess glaze was ground from the foot at the factory; there are some glaze flakes (tiny fleabites to the larger ones that are shown in Photo 4) adjacent to the ground area, from factory grinding, as made. Perhaps this is the reason for the "second quality" classification.
There are tiny, pinprick glaze bubble pops, as made. Variations in glazing (thicker and thinner areas) are as made. The interior is soiled from use, and there are scattered dark scuff marks to the exterior; I have not cleaned this estate item. Payments must be received within three days of the end of the listing, unless prior arrangements have been made.And international government regulations prohibit such behavior.
